In a dark, stormy night in the desert, Flame is born.

Flame is a 3D Animated short  for which I was the Art Director, Character Designer and one of the Animators. Our core team comprised of 7 members to create this endearing story of survival from script to final render in just 9 weeks.

We’re grateful to have received the consultation of Francesca Pesce, a Lighting and Compositing Supervisor as well as the support from Sound Engineer, Jung Mergs who helped bring our vision to life.
